We are packed to the gills.  Every year we try to keep the population down at our Mundaca clinic because it’s harder to get rides out of Mexico, there are less travelers and more heat restrictions.  The saddest thing is to see a pup grow up in a rescue, they want their own family more than anything else. SO here we are, FULL, and then we get a momma with nine 4 day old pups. Rescue is not like a business where we decide what we will allow.  What are we going to do if we’re full and someone doesn’t want this mom and pups?  We take them of course.

Thank you God Bless you

You guys are all so awesome....thank you so much💕💕💕🐶🐶🐶🐾🐾🐾🐾

Thank you for all you do I wish I was there to help love to you all

These animals are so grateful for the love and care from their rescuers. Thanks to you special angels

You all are amazing for the selfless work you do to save these deserving animals. I'm a huge fan of spay and neuter, as, I know, are you.

Omg so cute. Beautiful thank you

How hard is it for someone (Me) to come fly home with a puppy to help? I can’t adopt it, but I would be willing to take it to the states to a new home. Even more than one if that is legal. In Feb I was there with my family, we each would have brought a dog home for someone. Any information is appreciated. I would like to help, if I can.

Thank you <3

What is this litter theme?

We will be there around 3 today to say hi and make a donation. ,😊

And we are so happy that you do, they may not have a home, however they are safe, and not hungry.

Remember to message. I can find homes :)

Thank you. Puppy of every color!!

You guys are amazing!

I will pray for the mom and puppies God bless them all amen

Or an SPCA of Hancock County puppy !

Hope you find a safe home for them .

I never want Digger to go over the rainbow bridge, but when he does I am having me an Isla puppy!!!!

I can’t imagine what you all go through ☹️ Such Big hearts you have❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾

Angels!!

You guys rock

Heroes

You are amazing !❤️

Do we have to be in Mexico to adopt or will u ship?

We are so excited to get these three pups.  Finally. Initially we took them, fed them, vaccinated them and then had to give them back to the owners, which we did with a bunch of food.  We went back a week later and picked them up.  What a relief, they were not getting properly fed and two of them have a yellowish tint in their ears.  This could mean hepatitis, they tested negative. Enlarged spleen from Ehrlichia – caused by ticks and they were infested with them or other organ problems.  They are so sweet and loving and just want people to hold them, too cute.  Tomorrow is our free spay and neuter day so I will take one in for Arturo to see.  Let’s hope it’s something we can cure.

Thanks for all you do for the pups

Paul McCartney said that visiting Doris Day in her Californian home was like going to an animal sanctuary where her many dogs were taken care of in splendid style. I’ve always been so honored to have been nominated and received the Doris Day Animal Kindred Spirit award a few years ago.

Another incredible free spay and neuter day.  We did 18 dogs, that adds up to so many puppies not being born in the street like Little Chief. He was so sick when he came in - I never thought he would make it but he did and look at him now.  I just got this picture from his owners in Colorado.  It makes my day.  We actually met on the airplane when I was flying Little Chief to Denver.  They called me later that same week and adopted him.  What an incredible ending.Image attachment

Thank you for your caring and dedication to making animal lives better.

Awesome thank you

💙That’s our Little Chief!! Our family is the lucky one who gets the love, sweetness, and silliness from Chief every single day☺️. We feel like we won the lottery! Thank you to Isla Animals for their tireless dedication and energy given to these island pups day in and day out. 🤗🐕🐾🏝

Finally ----- we’ve been trying to help these pups for weeks. They were on a roof and we could see from the street how skinny there were. We checked on them every few days but the owner was never home. Finally yesterday he was there. So we took the pups and tested them for parvo and distemper – yahoo – negative, picked ticks, de-wormed and vaccinated them. And of course we fed them. They were starving. They are back with the owner for a week and then we will take them to the clinic. It’s the safest way to ensure they’re not spreading anything to the dogs that we already have. We did that with a little black pup as well. So next Sunday we’ll pick up all four. ... See MoreSee Less

Here they are with Anna

More pictures

I hope you take them all away from the "owner" that has them and never give them back to him <3

How are these puppies doing?

You see so many dogs on roofs . Wtf. This is so sad and wrong .

Beautiful . Thank you so much .

You folks do an awesome job

So sad, but so blessed Isla was there to rescue!

Keeping them?

Hope you do not return dogs to owner.....😔 He will just abuse them....and not feed them...😔

Is the owner willing to give them up?

Their “owner” clearly doesn’t care for them very well if he barely even feeds them. Thanks for helping them.

Just ordered you book

We want to come visit Isla animals this week! What days/hours are best?

What is with putting the dogs on the roof?? We see this so much!

What an incredible day on Thursday.  Last Sunday we set up a tent in an area called the Invasion which is a poorer neighborhood on Isla Mujeres with tons and tons of dogs and cats.  We gave away tick and flea meds and de-wormer to 190 dogs and cats.  While we treated the animals we collected the names of those who wanted to spay or neuter their pet.  So yesterday, our weekly free spay day, we spayed and neutered 18 animals.  What a great team we had.Image attachment

This is our beautiful Kia, found in the streets. Poor thing was really skinny, dirty and scared. One of her problems is a heart murmur.  But we have her on meds and it has improved.  AND she is finally gaining weight which has taken forever.  She’s so affectionate and ready for a home but she will need to be on heart medicine the rest of her life.  Such a sweet pretty dog.Image attachment

I have a wonderful happy ending. I know that most of you remember this very sad fellow. Cesar, who we found in the street almost dead. He had owners that didn’t care and the neighbors were all so happy when we arrived to help him. He was so bad that it has taken a very long time for him to recover. It was touch and go for a while but a wonderful couple (Kate and James) fostered him, they did everything they could for him and he slowly improved. He is now a Canadian, recovered, happy and loved. I love the new pictures. He has to get used to a car, a bed, what's a couch and then toys, now he can relax and play with toys. Just doesn't get better than this. ... See MoreSee Less

This has pretty much made my entire week. Look how happy he is!! The light and joy in his eyes...so incredibly moving. Thank you to IA and his new Canadian mom and dad for saving him!

This is just wonderful. I attached to Cesar as soon as I walked in and have donated to and followed his progress ever since. So very happy (and a bit choked up) to see his journey come to this happy ending. God Bless the folks at Isla Animals and Cesar's new family!

Love Love this ...he looks so happy❤️❤️

Thanks for sharing such a happy outcome. Look at the difference in the brightness of life in his eyes from when he was brought in to now. He looks so happy. I hope he lives a long, loving, healthy life in his new home.♥️♥️

We have been taking care of Terry for over a month now.  Someone spotted her and told us about this really skinny dog.  We tested her and she had ehrlichia and an enlarged spleen.  So our good friend Steve has generously been taking meds to her every day. Sadly, now that her treatment is done she’s still way to thin.  Monday we’re taking her for more tests.  I’m so hoping that it’s something we can treat, she’s the sweetest dog.  We want to do everything we can for her.

Terry went to Cancun today and got her bloodwork done, they were able to diagnose her. She has a hypo thyroid and is in renal failure. And still tested positive for Eurlikia. She can live a normal life but will be on a special diet the rest of her life. We will continue to do what we can, but we need help.n if you can donate anything, specify its for Terrys care. We will be working with the owners to make sure they understand how important the special food and medication are for her. Thank you so much. You can donate here Islaanimals.org

Awww... ❤️🐾Who’s sweetie is she❓ Hopefully she will gain some weight ❤️ You guys are the Best🐾❤️🐾

Terry's owners don't have the money to even treat Terry I do not know what they would have done without Steve and Marrien. Please if anyone has the money to help Terry get well and the testing and treatment I know that Isla animals spends the time and money on these dogs that one sends. It's hard to find charities these days that actually do that. And I have seen Steve over at terrys home on a daily basis taking and administering her medicine and canned dog food, flea and tick medicine .every day he was taking something over to Terry . In the beginning she wouldn't eat at all . But thanks to Steve's kind patient and loving care at least she will eat a can or 2 a day now but the fact that she still looks zombie dog is scary. Good luck

I will keep this beauty in my thoughts and prayers. God and Dog bless pup and hero's.

Omg I’m so sadden by this 😔 sending all the healing vibes possible

Aww praying for this baby for sure💝🌷🐶

Omg prayers sent, poor sweetheart, shared

Poor baby thank you very much

Thats what my dog looked like a month after she ate poison..my lovely little blond apricot 15 lb toy poodle 😣😥😦 There was no help for mine 😥 Iam thinking..perhaps same for her 😥

Sending prayers her way today <3

We can always use wveryones help. Every peso we get goes to the dogs we are 100% volunteer. Www.islaanimals.org

Poor sweetie. I am praying she pulls through.

Look at that beautiful face!.. please keep.us posted on how she is doing? Thanks💞

Good luck pretty girl ❤️🐾

Oh poor baby

Heart breaker. Is she in pain? Where does she sleep. Precious girl

Oh..... poor girl. I’m off to Isla soon. Will visit next week.

Get well soon, Sweetie!

Love and Prayers....❤❤❤

Sometimes you just have to keep feeding and feeding, chicken and butter and cheese and cooked veg etc etc and there is no weight gain for a long time, but then when all the depleted organs have gotten the nutrients they need, the weight grows quickly..... As long as she is eating....

Praying for her.

Hope Terry makes it.

Sandra Lee. Thank you for finding Terry for us

So sad. If anyone can help her you can.❤

I hope she makes it .

Below is a picture of the mom with the pups that Trina was holding in the last post. They were found in the most horrible place.  This is one of those times where you wonder why they were put there.  This poor mother was chained all the time, even when she was feeding her pups and the space where she was kept is a lime pit used to depose of dead animals.  I am speechless as to the kind of person who would do such a thing.  Luckily Elena saved them and took them home and now they are with us.Image attachmentImage attachment

Omg! Thank you Elena and Isla Animals!!! My heart breaks for her thank you for all you do!!!😇😇😇🐾❤️🐾🐶

God bless her for saving these wonderful creatures. Momma must be so relieved she’s off that chain. I just hope there’s some karma with anyone that would do this to an animal, much less a mother with pups.

We have a new momma with pups. The puppies just got their teeth and are doing really well because the mom’s getting great food.  That makes an enormous difference. Trina is caring for them until they can go to the Mundaca clinic, shes great with the little ones.  I wish all puppies could be so lucky.

Another wonderful free spay and neuter day. Twenty animals. Twelve of them were Isla Animal dogs and eight were brought in by their owners. While still sleeping in recovery, we clean their ears, pick any tics, cut their nails and attend to any wounds or skin conditions. It’s a full spa day. We have Isla Animal people working and appreciate volunteers. This happens every week and the numbers add up and make a difference. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to everyone for buying my book. Your positive reviews have helped to maintain a five star rating on Amazon.  All the funds raised from copies sold in Mexico go straight to the rescue and we have so much to do. Our team continues to grow and we’re all excited about the future. I’m hoping we can raise $500 in monthly donations by my 66 birthday on April 26. Just hit monthly under donations on our web site. Every penny will go to help one of these incredible animals. Thanks in advance for your support.

Wonderful job. Best of luck in your book sales to help the beautiful homeless ones!

Congrats! I just bought it today! Tony G recommended it to me and I can’t wait to read it! Thank you for the work you do with our beautiful Island animals! We walked a Oprah and Winfrey the other day because my sis in law Heidi Onsted loves to do that when she visits! I would love for you to meet my awesome vet friend Dr. Patti Canchola! I just sent her a note and suggested she connect with you!

You did an amazing job on your book and thank you for the amazing job you’ve done for all the dogs and pups!!!!!!💕💕💕

I am in the process of reading the book now, and I love it. Isla Animals is an amazing place to visit and your volunteers were all so friendly and the dogs and puppies were awesome!!!!

Margaret Rockliffe !!!

I loved reading your story after having met you in Punta Cana! You are very special, and do special work. I hope WA2S can come film at Isla Animals sometime!

i still need to buy the book i loved the first one we bought so now have to get this one , I have 50 bags of cans that need to go to Sarcan so I can send the money ...... hoping we can come in January again its been four years and i miss bowzer on the beach at Rondas

A wonderful read!💕🐶See you in May!

Www.islaanimals.org. Hit DONATE/one time & monthly donation and then PayPal. You can use PayPal or your own credit card Make it a continuous donation and you can put a memo that you want this month to go towards Alison’s Birthday. Make her day great!

Will be arriving Isla Mujeres at the beginning of August. Looking forward to getting your book and will be contributing to the monthly donations today. Keep up the great work!

Can I find this book to purchase on the island? Would love to have it to read this week! ❤🐕🐶

MY daughter got me your book for Christmas 😊 what a great story!!

We are on our way from Vancouver BC.. can’t wait to see the dogs - and help you reach your goals! thank you 🐶💙

Allison, is there a way to purchase on amazon to get the proceeds to go to Isla Animals-if I am reading the above correct, only proceeds from books bought on Isla go to the rescue?

Love the book, love what you do!

Oh, and if you’re coming down to Isla check out things that are always needed under Donate Supplies.

Just ordered my copy!

This is an excellent read, as is Alison’s other book, No Urn for the Ashes. You will recognize bits of Isla in both books.

I'm coming to the island in August and really want to come visit!

I bought it!

I enjoyed it immensely. It’s a good way for people to learn how much time, money, and dedication is necessary on a daily basis.

We have so many puppies. Wow. They just keep coming in. Two woman showed up with two pups in a box. They found them running in the street. The poor little guys were in sad shape, white gums. Dehydrated, and covered with fleas. Luckily we had everything they needed. Elena, our wonderful new team member gave them a bath, we dewormed them and have started vitamins. Without any complications they should improve quickly. Nothing better than seeing them be the puppies they are supposed to be. ... See MoreSee Less

You are all amazing for the work you do. Thanks from the heart.

Omg 😮 so cute I wish I had room

I’m in Cancun now !!! Would love to come by !

Love and appreciate all you do.

Thanks so much for all you do💕

Oh for goodness sake! It's raining puppies...send me a bushel 🙌🏽🐾❤️🙌🏽

I will be on the Island for a day in June, I'd like to stop by and kiss all the doggies, if that is ok.

I will pray for the puppies God bless them all amen

So glad people have a place to bring these pups rather than them trying to survive. Thank you!

We have been working with a family whose father lives on the island.  He’s having health issues and needs to return to the US.  Unfortunately he had two poodle pups that couldn’t go with him so Isla Animals are taking them in.  They are beautiful pups and very social, just fat because they were never walked. So strange, I don’t think that we’ve ever taken in dogs that have an overweight problem.

Have these babies found a home yet?

Have these two buddies found a permanent home yet? Reminds me of our Joey we lost a couple of years ago at 16 years.

Beautiful doggies!

Poor babies, they look sweet

Must be so hard for the owner too. My goodness, yes, this unusual to see fatties and looking well cared for on your site. How old are they? Do you think the owner will be back?

They are beautiful .

Omg how cute they are!!! shared

Beautiful! What is their age?

Beautiful

If they are ok with kids and need a foster home for the next week we are available!

Todos Esos Seres Maravillosos, merecen un hogar que les llenen de Amor, por siempre!♡

They are a gorgeous pair.

Wish we were there to foster them.

I'll bet not! Beautiful dogs!

They would definitely be adopted together!

They are stunning! Please find them the right home where they can remain stunning. Wow!

Shared on Maryland

Gorgeous

My preyers!♡♡

Prayers from Nova Scotia you find your forever home.

Such gorgeous dogs! Xx

How old are they? 🇨🇦

They look so much like my Josie, right Tiffany Yenawine Wareing and Nancy Blakestad??!

We picked up these beautiful puppies yesterday.  Their mother was hit by a car and survived but gave up nursing them early.  There are ten, can you believe that.  They were covered with fleas and have some wounds but nothing serious.  We bathed them and gave them de-worm medicine right away.  Not sure that they like the food we have so we may have to make some adjustments but so far they are chubby little balls of cuteness.

OMG so cute but so unfortunate this just seems never ending.....these guys will surely get good homes!!!

God and Dog bless all the pups you all save and all of you and for the awesome job you do. Thank you.

Sending good healing juju to mamma dog. These puppies are adorable! ❤️❤️

They should not adopted unless they go out of country As most little puppies get adopted here n once they go up they r kicked to the street My sister is looking after a dog whose owner just up n left him behind. They would be outside n the dog would go up to them his tail wagging like crazy Just wanting attention and all the owners would do is kick him away My sister is leaving back home April 24 n is hoping n praying he will find a wonderful n loving home His name is scoopy doo his tail is curled a pugs tail. He is extremely loyal will sleep on his bed all nite long n not get up He does do his job outside. He is so loving n loyal he just wants to loved

How are the puppies doing, any new photos

Awe, so beautiful and so extremely grateful for your organization

We donated some food when we were there on Isla last month. It makes my heart feel good to see these little ones eating (some was puppy food!). Your rescue is fully amazing. Never seen one so clean and welcoming.

Jessica Fredette we need to bring puppy food this week when we go to snuggle these little buggers!!

So sweet❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾I’d love the one with two black ears... sitting on his butt with a little curled tail💖

Thank you everyone, Elmer is back.  Arturo kept him in Cancun during the first part of his recovery but brought him back last Thursday.  He’s such a happy guy, no more pain.  He uses his leg a little bit but still needs to heal from the surgery and build up his muscles.  He really is the cutest little dog. He says thank you for paying for his surgery.Image attachment

We have a new project that is so sad.  He was spotted by a tourist who sent us the first foggy photo and it was obvious that he needed help.  Trina and I went searching and found him at his home.  What a mess, I just don’t understand how anyone could think that was okay.  We took him directly to Arturo’s clinic and cut a bucket of filthy matted fur off of him and did some tests.  Positive for ehrlichia, heartworm and so covered in ticks that he’d also had chewed himself raw in places.  I have him at my house, he’s sweet, eating well, but has a long recovery ahead of him.Image attachment

Omg...you are a wonderful person. I💖

Sweet pup, thank goodness for the heads up and getting rescued. Shame on his owner.

Omg... thank you for taking him in!

God bless all of you for helping this dog. Someone knows who did this to this innocent dog. Karma will get this owner big time.

Another lucky and grateful pup! Thank you all!

So sad!!!! Thank you for finding him and getting his life back to a normal state. No better place for him to be. Love and hugs to you!!!

The poor guy. I am so glad he is feeling love and comfort with you. I will keep him in my thoughts and pray for a healthy recovery.

Thank you soooo much

Omg! Glad he is in good hands now and already looks better. For such as small island the dogs are sure mistreated! My Gary (aka Toby) is living the dream in Canada.. Isla boy, from the roof.

Thank you God Bless you all

Poor baby. So happy that he was rescued!

God bless you, girls.

Ty❤️and God Bless u

Do the owners get charged with abuse

What is wrong with people,??? Poor baby I am so happy he found his way to you. God bless you for all you do for these fur babies!!!!!

Cuddo to the tourist for getting help for this poor baby. God bless you for all that you do.

Thank you for everything you do.

💔 so incredibly sad that this exists in the world and so incredibly miraculous that people like you guys exist in the world ❤️

So sad. Thank you again and again for what you do.

Omg you are all heroes saving these poor babies

God bless you ❤️

You're amazing God bless you he's a creation and we are to protect them!💝🐶💝🐱💝🌷

Needs to be some accountability for these people that have dogs and they don’t take care of them

People make me so angry! 😡. Glad is is in IA’s wonderful hands.

Blessings to you and that tourist for helping him.

Cesar continues to have troubles.  His immune system is way down and he has bleeding issues.  Kate and James are still treating him like a king on their boat and we finally got the right kind of collar to keep him from licking his incision.  Kate says it’s perfect, it can double as a life vest if he falls overboard.  Ha ha.  Which of course will never happen because they are watching him so closely.  They really are amazing.  Our worries now are infection, we’ll have him checked again tomorrow.

He looks so humiliated, that's why they call them to cone of shame. Poor guy

Take one of the pool noodles that people use and make a collar for him. It will feel better.

How is Cesar doing? Hoping that he is recovering well! Would love to have an update.

Praying for sweet Caesar 🙏

Sending love!

Praying for Ceasar!

Thank you Katie and James!🥰

Praying for Caesar

Thank you and then for helping him . Cone of shame !

Sending healing vibes and ❤️ his way.

Love and Prayers.❤❤❤

try ordering k9 immunity plus....

Sounds like he is getting lots of TLC, feel better soon.

Hang in there Caesar! Many people love you and want to see you recover!!

Wonder what the bleeding issues are? Is his count down?

Prayers for Cesar!

Best of luck with him! 🍀🐶🍀🙏🏼🍀🐶🍀

❤️🐾

Prayers up

Good luck

Poor Cesar

Keep fighting buddy - the good life is just getting started for you!

I love this picture, it’s a poor abused and neglected dog finally feeling safe.  It’s our Cesar.  Unfortunately he has a bleeding problem and has to have surgery again today.  But he is looking so much healthier, I’m sure he will come thru just fine.  I will let you know.  The hard part is – for some reason – Cesar is terrified of shots.  I’ve never seen a dog react like this, if he sees a needle he gets ready to run, it’s the oddest thing.  We’ve had to change all of his meds over to pills.

Love this guy! He's such a sweetheart.

You are doing awesome work helping animals

He's so beautiful,,,, and obviously he's in a good place not only in body, but also in his mind too!!!💖 Dogs only show/sleep belly up when they are comfortable and feels safe!!! Warms my heart!💖

Get Well . Prayers

so happy for him

Sending healing prayers. I am so glad he is safe and being well taken care of. God Bless you all.

Why was he bleeding? Also, for poor Caesar to be so afraid of needles, that really sounds suspicious of his former owners. It was obvious when I walked him, he was afraid of being petted. Such a sweet boy and so blessed to have been rescued by you!!

Awe I loved that dog when we visited. He’s so sweet!

Love a smiling dog :-), keep us posted.

Sending healing prayers 🙏

Sending prayers for Ceasar 🙏

Thank goodness he has a good home now

What a lovely, confident dog. Hoping he recovers swiftly.

Poor sweet fella. He must have been traumatized by needles along with the rest of his abuse. OR! He has very sensitive skin 🤷🏻‍♀️. Many hugs and smooches for your doggie. ♥️

Hope all goes well. . . . Have a speedy recovery 💕

Good luck and speedy recovery for Cesar, he looks like a sweetheart. Is he still on the boat.

I just saw him a week ago & Am amazed T how great he looks will be praying for hi ‘ please keep the updates coming & pictures thanks for giving him A second chance

Looks like he’s had some CBD 🥴

I’ll be pulling for the pooch. Very handsome dog. 🤞🤞🤞

so so cute

This dog is very special ❤🐕

My prayers are with him for a speedy recovery

He looks great!

Poor Guy not sure do dogs have Phobias? Either way will be 🙏

I’m so happy to give a good report on Elmer.  He’s recovering well and because of your generosity he got the best kind of surgery for his broken leg.  They put a fancy looking pin in his leg (I won’t show you the gory details) but he’s up and around.  Not using the leg yet but he will.  He has been with Arturo the whole time and Arturo says that they all just love him.  Arturo arranged the surgery and did all the transport and x-rays.  Thank you Arturo.  I can’t wait to see him.  He’s duded up with a fancy cone of shame that doesn’t look very shameful.  This is all such a wonderful thing.  Thank you for all your support.Image attachment

Wait until you hear this.  Our handsome Cesar is taking some time to heal, he was so down when we took him off of the street. It just takes time.  We neutered him because our clinic is really small and un-neutered males make it difficult to have all the dogs out and socializing.  Now to help with his recovery and because he’s such a charmer a wonderful couple who volunteer every day and live on a boat have offered to foster him.  This is a new one.  From the streets to a beautiful floating foster home.  What a lucky guy.

He deserves every good thing that happens in his new life.Heal soon handsome &have a awesome life full if love, adventures & more 💙

Awl prayers sweet boy

I volunteer to be fostered!! No, like really!! He needs a boat buddy to snuggle with, and give kisses and hugs. I am ready and willing to take one for the team! 🙋‍♀️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for taking him in. Lately I’ve been having Isla Dog Fever.... like I’m really wanting to come down and adopt another pup! Scout is just the best and to have 2 Isla Wonders. Heaven!!!

lol he is one lucky pup!

How wonderful and God Bless the Tompkins for making this decision!

Cesar is such a great dog , I'm glad Isla Animals saved him and now he'll have the great life he and all dogs deserve

Thank you to everyone here for doing what you do!

Wow Wonderful

Thank you for sharing your love and home with Cesar 💃🌴💕

you are so wonderful. take good care of him.

He is a sweetheart. Very well mannered. Always ready for a treat and a rub.

Hahaha he’s still undecided on being a boat dog but he is definitely loving the peace and quiet and snuggles. We are loving having him ❤️🥰

Sweet heart God bless

Love Cesar's story … and he is feeling the love! 💞

He looks pretty happy! Thank you sailors!!

Best of luck and lots of love for you Cesar, you deserve it! ❤❤

Hope he becomes a foster fail!

Awesome.

So sweet ... thank you for living this baby! 🐾❤️

Love .

Great News 👍

Awesome news!!!

Love this! ♥️

He’s such a sweet dog! We finally saw him wagging his tail, before it just hung down. We sure hope he finds a good home! So sweet & mild mannered. Even our marina cats like him (he’s a little afraid of them tho) 😻

So many people are watching out for the animals.  Someone called Steve who called me to say that there was a dog in really bad shape.  We went to get her and they were right, what a sad sight.  Unbelievably she is only 3 years old and positive for ehrlichia so we started her on meds which should make a difference, she is skin and bones. We’re also concerned about her liver, Arturo will do an ultrasound tomorrow.  What a sweet dog. Her name is Terry and she should weigh at least 30 lbs more than she does now.
